Title: TikiWiki: XSS vulnerability (GLSA 200510-23)
Date: October 28, 2005
Updated: May 22, 2006
TikiWiki is vulnerable to cross-site scripting attacks.
TikiWiki is a web-based groupware and content management system (CMS), using PHP, ADOdb and Smarty.
Vulnerable: < 126.96.36.199
Unaffected: >= 188.8.131.52
Architectures: All supported architectures
Due to improper input validation, TikiWiki can be exploited to perform cross-site scripting attacks.
A remote attacker could exploit this to inject and execute malicious script code or to steal cookie-based authentication credentials, potentially compromising the victim's browser.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All TikiWiki users should upgrade to the latest version:
Note: Users with the vhosts USE flag set should manually use webapp-config to finalize the update.
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/tikiwiki-184.108.40.206"
